Re: Windows 10 IOT Multi Tasking

I don't see where you are calling setupTimer to start the timer going. the 'timer1_loaded' calls it, but I can't tell if that is ever being called.

Re: WiFi Direct unstable

Are you putting the Wifi dongles in the top row?

If so there was a known bug that they are flakey there. Don't know why just that they are.

Try putting in the bottom row and see if you have a different experience.

I didn't believe them either till I tried. :)

There is no way to disable this in the current SKU. There is a PRO SKU that requires you to sign up for some sort of commercial version. Not sure of all the details. In the PRO SKU, much like in Windows 10 Enterprise, you will be able to turn off the updates. I did the update 2 days ago, just cause ...

Re: Make a buzzing sound

In general driving a load from a GPIO pin by raising it high is bad practice. If you want to use the GPIO pin directly without the output buffer mentioned, you should make that sync to ground. This means setting the pin low to turn on the buzzer. The GPIO pin can sync lots of current to ground, wher...

It is probably because Windows 10 IoT isn't fully booted.

Windows 10 core IoT only supports Universal Windows Platform(UWP) applications.

Re: Booting does not pass the colored screen

You need a better quality of SD card. Went though a number of "Class 10" cards that were inexpensive. Some worked, some didn't. I don't think their quality control is all the good. There are also "Legacy Class 10" cards out there as well. Don't know exactly what that means, but I am betting that it ...

the '<' and '>' are indications that you need to put a value here and what it should be.

There are not part of the syntax of the command. Remove them and you should be fine.

I would suggest a using an I2C device as well. WinIoT directly supports that protocol and it is way easy to use.

Re: i2cdetect

I would head over to the windowsondevices.com site:

http://ms-iot.github.io/content/en-US/w ... stTool.htm

It is a tool that you need to compile and load onto the rpi that is a command line interface to the i2c stuff.

Pretty low level, but it may help.

Re: Synchronizing with ui tread

I believe it is actually the other way around. The RunAsync command fires an event with a payload to the UI thread and returns. So you code goes merrily one. If you were to put a "AsTask().Wait()" on the end of that, then that call will wait till the UI thread is done. For a better explanation check...

Try putting the keyword "this" in front of the Dispatcher.

For an example bit code you want todo something like:

Re: Windows 10 IoT fails to load on Pi2?

I have seen some of these "good" class 10 cards now being advertised with the term "Legacy" in front of them.

Not all cards are created equal. Just because they boot a unix distro doesn't guarantee it will boot Windows 10, which appears to have tighter requirements.

Can't imagine that formating the drive FAT32 did anything more than slow down the process.

When you image the SD card, you are righting over whatever is there.

I bet he just got lucky with an inferior SD card.
